HUMBLE for PRESIDENT MANIFESTO
The presidential election, in many ways, is the most expensive, intensive, high stakes job interview there is. But are we, the voters—democracy’s human resource department—even asking the right questions?
A corrosive pride pervades our politics. Our problem is not so much that there is a Red America and a Blue America, or that the two or irreconcilable. And it’s not that one side of the aisle is entirely right while the other is entirely wrong. It’s that both sides are unwilling to admit that they could be wrong. In this country, at this time in history, our political chasm can be bridged. Not by some grand bargain. Not by another Great Communicator. But through an unvarnished, ancient virtue: Humility. Humble for President is a national campaign asking our next president to rise to a new level. Not to toe the party line. Not to bow to any interest group or issue. But to campaign and govern with humility.
Join the Humble for President campaign to help spread the message that humility in a leader is a strength, not a weakness; confidence, not insecurity; that it's thinking of yourself less; not thinking less of yourself. We need leaders across America who recognize the power of the ancient virtue of humility. Leaders who are for others, not just for themselves. Leaders who will rise up and lead with integrity, honor and trust. Leaders who care more about the cause than the applause. Help us remind the nation that humility-based leadership is the right style of leading for every president – including all elected officials. We need politicians to become public servants again. Our future depends on it.
